Get fit, and have fun doing it, at The Color Run, coming to Tulsa. The run, pegged as “the happiest 5K on the planet,” blasts runners with colored paint at every kilometer. Less about beating your personal best time and more about having fun, The Color Run has become the world’s largest running series, experienced by novice and experienced runners alike in more than 35 countries.

The fun doesn’t stop at the finish line, either – the Finish Festival greets all participants after the race. This party, with dancing, music and even more colored paint, concludes your whimsical day at the races.

This year’s theme is “The Hero Tour.” A participant can dress the part and, according to the company’s website, “celebrate the hero in you, in a realm where nothing is impossible and you are unstoppable.”

The Color Run takes place April 7 at River West Festival Park. Register at
